Modi Win Bodes Well for Indian Stocks


BJP's Lok Sabha member Kirit Somaiya on Monday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the man from French soothsayer Nostradamus' prophecy, who will take India to new heights. "This was a huge victory and had really made Mr. Modi quite invincible in some ways and this was the time really to move on and to tell people that now we are in power in Delhi and in India's largest state and political heartland, we will get onto the modernizing agenda". "Similar action is needed to contain terror activities in this country", he said when the executive order was first announced. On Sunday, he was sworn in as chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state. The factual position in India is that, the Muslims are facing massacres and humiliation, Christians are subjected to vandalism of Churches and rape of elderly Nuns and Sikh community is being suppressed in the name of Khalistan and other separatist sentiments.

Reports suggests that there is a tussle between Chief Minister Adityanath and his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya over the important home portfolio.

In a late-evening development, a government press release said that all the department heads were advised to terminate the services of the advisors and vice-chairmen appointed during the previous SP regime.

Yogi Adityanath has been in the news for being chosen as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.

A senior Congress party leader, Veerappa Moily, said Adityanath's selection was "an assault on secularism".

Taiwan defense minister says China missiles pose threat
Ms Chang urged Beijing to communicate with Taipei "in order to maintain stability and peace in the Asia-Pacific region". But Taiwan claim China is targeting the island with around 1,500 missiles.

Many in the country have thrown their support behind Modi because they see him as a strong leader who can deliver on promises of wiping out corruption, reviving the economy and creating jobs. Some profiles describe Adityanath as a "firebrand Hindu cleric"; other commentators are less charitable.

Adityanath, who was sworn-in as the 21st Chief Minister of UP, has promised to work for all sections of the society without any discrimination, pursuing the agenda of "sabka sath, sabka vikas". "You have to change when you're in government compared to when you're in agitational politics".

For the first time in the executive and administrative history of the State, the new Chief Minister wanted the officers to take a pledge of Swachchata Abhiyan while making a fervent appeal to start the campaign from their own homes and surroundings.

His appointment - undoubtedly approved by Mr Modi - has surprised analysts, given the prime minister's careful rhetorical emphasis on development and economic growth rather than on religion. "We will ensure balanced development of UP", Adityanath said in comments that assume significance as he is considered to be a hardline Hindutva mascot.
